Student Clinics to be led by Principal Ed Byrne

King’s has recently launched a student engagement programme with the President & Principal, Edward Byrne, and Vice-Principal, Karen O’Brien, holding student clinics and faculty sessions. A student clinic will be held on alternating campuses in the autumn and spring terms, giving you an opportunity to raise any concerns or have a brief chat about your experience at King’s.

The first clinic is being held on the Strand Campus at the Careers Centre, Level 1 of the Macadam Building on March 11, 2015 from 12.30 to 14.00.

This session will provide an opportunity for you to discuss any issues you might have or concerns about your experience at King’s with the following people:

  • President & Principal – Professor Edward Byrne
  • Vice-Principal (Education) – Professor Karen O’Brien
  • Director of Student Services – Chris Shelley
  • President of KCLSU – Sebastiaan Debrouwere

The clinic will be run on a first come, first served basis, and you will be allocated an appointment on arrival. Refreshments will be available at the event.

Further sessions will run in each faculty over the next 13 months. This will be a chance for students to showcase their work and have a half hour Q&A session with the Principal and Karen O’Brien.

Improving student experience for Postgraduate Students

The Enhancement Project for postgraduate students is being managed by students for students and a series of focus groups are being held to give all postgraduate students an opportunity to feed their views into the project. There are still a number of focus groups remaining, so please sign up to participate in one of them if you can.

As part of our commitment to enhancing the student experience at King’s, four postgraduate students have been appointed as interns to make recommendations about what we are doing well and areas where we can improve. The ethos of the project is that small things can have a big impact and we want to hear what ideas you have that could benefit the King’s student community. The project compliments the annual Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES – which opens on 19th March) as it explores in more detail the issues that students raise in their feedback.

The focus groups are being held across the university and if you would like to participate, could you email the intern facilitating each session so that appropriate refreshments can be ordered:
